JACKSON, TN — A woman has filed a complaint after she said a doctor gave her an insulting diagnosis, according to WREG.
Terry Ragland said she went to see the doctor for back pain. The doctor sent her for X-rays, and then told her the problem was a “ghetto booty.”
Ragland said she has been to this particular office before, but this was the first time she had seen Dr. Sweo.
Dr. Sweo told WREG, “What I was trying to explain to that patient is that she has lumbar lordosis, which is a fancy name for the curve of the lower spine that makes the buttocks protrude more. In trying to explain that I said that she had ghetto booty and she didn’t like that apparently.”
The woman has filed a complaint with the Tennessee Department of Health.
